Project details

The building design is inspired by the local vernacular of Carlton, a Melbourne suburb whose distinct character is defined by its mixture of laneways, industrial warehouses, terrace housing and gardens. These different features have been reassembled into the stacked layers of the building, where each urban condition relates to a specific program for the school.

Reinforcing the existing laneway on the site, the ground floor features an open configuration of forum, breakout areas and a café to support the diverse activity of the school and connect with the community. A
generous open stair connects to the level above, which is referred to as the “knowledge ecosystem” and contains the learning and
teaching spaces. Modelled after local industrial buildings, these predominately large format and flexible environments can be re-purposed as pedagogical needs change over time.
